Compared to “theology” (unscientific forms of thought), science only assumes that objective factual truths about our world exist and, but otherwise all knowledge or claims are open to scrutiny or challenge
What do we mean by objective?

In “theology”: specific facts/values are taken as “revelation” or “faith” and cannot be questioned; other values /facts must be made to fit them
What do we mean by “assumptions open to challenge”
Ok. So maybe…
Weber throws shade :“Who believes this? Aside from a few big children in university chairs and editorial offices.”
“Science is meaningless because it gives no answer to our question: the only question important for us: What shall we do and how shall we live?” - Tolstoi

Discuss: how would you prove who is right… scientifically?
